LA Trip Recap

I am waaaaay behind on posting about so many things, so I figured I'd start with finishing the recap of my mom and I's trip to LA and San Diego. 

On the day we went to LA, my mom got a call from her doctor that morning with bad news. (I just realized I never posted an update on her situation!) Her doctor said her scan came back with spots of cancer in her neck and chest- we were not expecting the chest. When she got back to Atlanta, she went in for another scan. They mailed her the results before her doctor called to explain, and she found out that there were two nodules in her lung...this is when I freaked out. Luckily, her doctor called the next morning and said they were benign! PRAISE THE LORD! Now, we just wait for the radioactive iodine to work its magic and kill the cancer in her neck. She'll have blood work done in a couple months, and her doctor is very optimistic that everything will be just fine! It's definitely been a roller coaster of emotions but we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!

Okay, onto the recap!

After going to Rodeo Drive, we ventured over to Hollywood Boulevard to see Jimmy Kimmel! Before we went in, we saw all of the famous theaters, including Grauman's Chinese Theater


And the Walk of Fame

And the Roosevelt Hotel

We also saw the premiere of Phineas and Ferb, the movie! We couldn't stick around though since we had a date with Mr. Kimmel :)

I couldn't take any pictures inside of the studio, but this was easily the highlight of our day. I l-o-v-e going to tapings. I've been to TRL back in the day, Regis and Kelly, Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve, and now Jimmy Kimmel. And this one was nothing short of entertaining. 

First, a guy in the audience was incredibly intoxicated and fell asleep during the taping. He may have done something inappropriate, but we couldn't see because huge security men were surrounding him and kicked him out. He yelled out, "I'm under arrest!" on his way out :)

Then, a woman behind us actually made my jaw drop. 

One of the guests on the show for that day was this little boy. He caught a ball at a baseball game and gave it to another little boy who was crying because he didn't catch it. It was SO sweet. Watch it...it'll make you cry!


Right after this segment, they threw some t-shirts out to the audience and one flew right over my head. A girl 2 rows back caught it, and then an old lady in front of her grabbed one of the sleeves and refused to let go. The girl was just as in shock as I was and kept saying, "seriously...I caught it....let go!" but the creepy old lady just stared at her and didn't say a word. This went on for a couple minutes (ridiculous!) until the show started taping again and the producers yelled at the lady to let go. I was a little annoyed when they gave the old lady a shirt!

This lady seriously had the nerve to do this over a t-shirt. Right after this little boy came on the show because of his generosity. Irony at its finest.


Next up: the final post of our trip to San Diego!

I'm still thinking about you and your mom!! I can't wait for all of this stress to finally be over for you!

I want to go to a taping when I'm out there! That video of the boy really did make me cry (pathetic?) and I cannot believe that old lady. I guess that's proof that kindness has absolutely nothing to do with age. Haha!

Sounds like a fun trip, one I've always wanted to do. I hope you get good news for your mom soon, great to hear that everyone is optimistic. Hope is the best medicine.
